Nigeria customs stops top Spanish designer from showcasing at Nigeria Fashion Week

Top Spanish designer, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, from the Prada family, who was billed to showcase her collection to close the show at the Nigeria Fashion Week which ended today at Oriental Hotel, Lagos, couldn't do because Nigeria customs seized her things.

When it was her turn, the organizer of the show, fashion promoter, Lexy Mojo Eyes‎, informed the expectant audience that the Spanish designer couldn't showcase because her clothes had been seized by officials of the Nigeria Customs Service. 
Agatha Ruiz de la Prada herself also came on stage to address the crowd and apologize for her inability to showcase at this year's edition of the show.

Taking bribe and seizing non-illegal items are both wrong.

What's a Spanish designer showing her work in a show that should be showcasing nigerian designers only? Nigerians/sub-saharan africans and their inferiority complex. The Spanish will never give africans that kind of opportunity.

Ezekiel Oloriegbe said...

Why are you people abusing Nigerian Customs? For once, they did the right thing and some fools are abusing them.

Have you asked the reason her goods were Siezed.? If it's Nigerian designer going to Spain , the Spanish will do Worse! US recently denied Okagbare good chance of success in coming Season by keeping her from her husband with Visa denial .

you guys grow out of your inferiority complex. Ask first why Customs Siezed her goods.

My dear anonymous, do not blame him. He is good only when it has to do with women and sex. He has never contributed positively to anything being discussed here. It's a pity!

Now I know Bonario has never been to any Nigerian airport. Anyway, I trust there must be someone connected in that crowd that will get the customs officer who seized it fired. Meanwhile, why were the organisers not on hand to help her?

Too bad, very bad, those people can never change, Nigeria custom

Lol, i love your response.

Rotfl, I never knew Prada has a cloth line

Linda. Mojo Eyes. Fellow Nigerians. Always think before dropping false news and comments that incite unjustly. The said goods are in the custody of NAHCO, not the Customs Service. If Linda investigated, like i have done, she would have found out the truth. NAHCO was shut down earlier in the week due to operational and security reasons. The designer's clothes came in after the shut down. It has not even passed thru Customs processing yet, so how could Customs have 'SEIZED' the package? In any case, her goods are not contraband so Customs would not seize them. Always put things in proper perspective so that responders can be objective.

Idowu Afolabi said...

That's bad...i wonder what could be the problem

Anonymous said...

Bonario!!!! Quit showing your ignorance. Am sure u have never past thru an international airport with this your comment. Its not story that u must say something, keep quiet if u have no idea of wat is been discussed. Stay blessed. Cheers.

Lagos customs seized the cloths I sent to nigeria as a gift for my brothers birthday. They ask for $1000 or they distory the items. Criminal

Oga, what are u saying?

mike Achimugu said...

Come on guys..your attitude here shows the larger Nigerian problem: Ignorance and crass bandwagon jumping. We post comments based on hearsay and nobody bothers about the merits of a case. Nigeria Customs have not even seen the goods that you insult them for. How do you SEIZE what you haven't SEEN? Them be WITCH? The woman has her wares in NAHCO. NAHCO was shut down earlier because of operational and security issues. Her goods came into Nigeria after that shut down so there was NOBODY to process them. Customs have not been given the goods to process. Now that you have a very authentic information from somebody who cared to actually investigate, if you like, don't adjust your opinion and reasoning. Sheer ignorance never pays.
